JetBlue Airways is a domestic United States airline that began operations in 2000 and now serves over sixty destinations in 22 states. It’s corporate headquarters is in Queens, New York City with its main hub at John F. Kennedy International Airports Terminal 5.
The JetBlue operation centres on various focus airports throughout the United States. These consist of Long Beach Airport, Logan International Airport, Hollywood International Airport (in Fort Lauderdale), Orlando International Airport and Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in Puerto Rico.
In addition to these focus airports, JetBlue has considerable operations at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas, McCarren International Airport, Las Vegas, Oakland Airport (close to San Francisco), Southwest Florida Airport and Washington Dulles Airport.
Although for the most part a domestic airline, JetBlue flies to eleven countries in the Caribbean and South America.
Formed by ex-Southwest Airlines employees, despite being a budget airline JetBlue seeks to offer a premium in-flight entertainment experience via their DIRECTV system. This provides personal screens offering over thirty channels of content including games, movies and music. Passenger comfort is also improved by offering a superior seat pitch, with the front cabin of their Airbus A320 aircraft boasting a 38 inch pitch per seat.
Fee Free JetBlue tickets
Flight tickets can be purchased either on the internet or by phone. The fuss-free way is online as this avoids the $15 surcharge when booking by phone. Booking more than eight tickets can only be made by telephone, although the $15 fee is not applicable in these circumstances. When booking less than eight tickets by phone, a fee-free JetBlue ticket booking is possible by using either a JetBlue Travel Certificate or Jet Blue Gift Card to pay.
To reschedule or cancel non-refundable tickets, a $100 per ticket charge is applicable. If a non-refundable flight ticket is not used, all money associated with the ticket is forfeited.
In the case of refundable tickets, no penalty is imposed if a change or cancellation is made prior to the scheduled departure. If the flight is not taken, all money associated with the ticket can be placed on a JetBlue air-only credit for future Jet Blue tickets, valid for one year from date of issue.
JetBlue Airlines Check In
JetBlue offers all customers a Web Check-In service that can be used from 24 hours up to 90 minutes before scheduled departure.
TrueBlue is the name of the airlines frequent-flyer program. Prior to its an overhaul in 2009, TrueBlue provided members with two, four or six points depending on the distance of travel, whilst double points were awarded for flights booked online.
Following the September 2009 revamp, JetBlue altered the way in which points were awarded from a distance based system to a value based system. Members now earn three points for every dollar spent on a ticket with the points doubled to six for online bookings. All figures upon which points are awarded exclude taxes and fees. Also, members need to fly with JetBlue at least once every year to keep points active.
